Nohemi Gonzalez: American college student among victims killed in Paris attacks “Video”

Nohemi Gonzalez, a 23-year-old design student who attended the California State University, Long Beach, was among those killed in attacks in Paris that left at least 129 dead on Friday, according to the university.

“She was in Paris attending Strate College of Design during a semester abroad program,” Cal State Long Beach’s Shayne Schroeder said.

“I’m deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Long Beach State University student Nohemi Gonzalez,” said Cal State Long Beach President Jane Close Conoley. “Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this sad time. Our university stands with our nearly eighty foreign exchange students from France as they struggle with this tragedy. We will extend all support necessary to comfort them. We will also extend support to all students, faculty and staff who are in need.”

University officials said “specific details” about how and where Gonzalez died were not available.

Gonzalez’s last post on her Facebook page indicated that she found learning in French to be a challenge. “Learning a 3D modeling computer program in a language I don’t know is up there In the top 3 hardest things I’ve ever had to do,” she wrote.

A vigil to memorialize her was scheduled for 4 p.m. tomorrow on campus.

The attacks killed 129, most at a concert hall, Bataclan, where Southern California band Eagles of Death Metal was half way through a set when three or more gunmen opened fire, shooting into the audience as band members escaped backstage.

Three teams of attackers carried out the terror at six locations in Paris Friday night, using assault rifles, grenades and, in final acts of defiance, suicide bombs, according to reports. As many as eight suspected terrorists were found dead following the violence.

The Eagles of Death Metal, whose leader Jesse Hughes lives in Los Angeles, escaped the violence, but merchandise manager Nick Alexander, 36, was among those killed.
